    This issue has come up before. I don't think you're gonna find one. You might wanna give some consideration to fabricating your own from mesh stock. It's available from several suppliers on the internet.

    Yo CRock, go here http://www.usspeedonline.com/page/U/CTGY/CTS
    The site has the entire V-grille set on their page, but if you call them at 800-291-9861 the customer service rep will tell you that you can get just the lower grill for $139. I hope it is a perfect match with your currentt V grille!

    My dealer installed it for $20 bucks. I didn't want to bother with it.

    Crock,
    You should be able to do it in less than 45 minutes. Here's my post from earlier in this thread. The only tool you'll need is a pair of side cutter and two Buds.

    I'M BETTING YOU GOT 12 RETAINERS. FOUR ARE AT THE TOP. THE THINGS ARE CHEAP. GET'EM AT YOUR PARTS DEPARTMENT. SIDE CUTTER WORK FINE. THEIR ALL ACCESSIBLE FROM THE BACK OFF THE GRILL. THE ONE ON THE SIDE ARE A LITTLE TOUGHER. YOU'LL NOTICE THE RETAINERS ARE INSTALLED FROM THE BACK SIDE. WHEN YOU REINSTALL, INSERT THEM FROM THE TOP AT THE REAR OF THE GRILL. THAT'S A MUST! NO FRIGIN' WAY CAN YOU INSTALL LIKE AT THE FACTORY. IT DOESN'T MATTER SINCE EITHER SIDE HOLD THE GRILL IN PLACE. THIS IS THE WAY THE REST OF US HAVE DONE IT. GOOD LUCK. SORRY FOR THE CAP LOCK

    its easy.. the hardest thing it reaching behind .. i bent the front bumper to reach in by the latch and cracked the top of my bumper.. thats the main reason i got it painted. be carefull i would take off the bumper and do it.. but then again you dont have to. if i had to redo it i would definitly take the bumper off and do it. just my 2 cents.

    Ooh man You cracked your bumper? How did you ever do that? It really is an easy job. Having big hands can make it uncomfortable on the sides retainers. I had my wife clip the side retainers. Crock, what's it gonna cost you to repair your bumper?

    I was reluctant to do the V mesh grill, but I wondered what it would look like painted black. After seeing these photos, I might have to do it in the spring.
